Brause produces a wide range of calligraphy nibs, nib holders, and calligraphy practice tools. Brause nibs have been made in Germany since 1850 and are widely considered to be some of the best calligraphy nibs on the market.
Founded in 1850, Brause manufactures steel nibs for writing, drawing and calligraphy. Brause nibs can be found in the toolbox of many calligraphers, lettering artists, penmen and illustrators and are considered to be among the best on the market. Offering a subtle balance between relative elasticity for easier writing, and the resistance necessary for clear strokes, Brause Nibs are manufactured from cold rolled steel and pressed with tools specific to each model and nib size.
The most delicate part of the manufacturing process involves cutting a slit down the middle of the nib, enabling the ink to flow correctly and freely from the reservoir to the tip of the nib.
